From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): Tamme won't go away in Peyton Manning offenses. The Broncos are saying that Julius Thomas's injury is no big deal, but they tend to downplay injuries. Tamme doesn't have a high ceiling, but if he's the only healthy tight end for Peyton Manning, he'll deserve TE1 consideration.

Week 12: vs Miami Dolphins

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Peyton Manning had a misfire against the Rams, throwing more interceptions (two) than TDs (one) for the first time this season, while posting 34/54 for 389 yards passing. It was also his first game this season with only one passing score - he's had at least two in all of his other games, and averages three per contest (30 TDs over 10 games played). This off game has the clear look of an aberration, folks - this is not the start of a trend. Julius Thomas exited the St. Louis game early due to a sprained ankle that looks fairly minor as of mid-week, so it looks like Thomas dodged the injury bug despite having a mere 2/3/0 receiving during the loss in St. Louis. Demaryius Thomas (10 targets for 7/103/0 receiving) and Emmanuel Sanders (eight for 5/102/1) still posted respectable games despite the struggles of Manning. Don't panic Manning owners/Denver fans - it's time to R-E-L-A-X, as Aaron Rodgers might say. The Miami pass D ranks second in the NFL averaging 208.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with 14 TDs given up vs. 10 interceptions and 30 sacks generated so far (tenth- and third-ranked, respectively). Last week, Buffalo was held without a TD in either phase of the game (Kyle Orton posted 22/39 for 183 net yards, zero TDs or interceptions, with two sacks taken for -10 yards), while Matthew Stafford and company managed 27/42 for 288 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -19 yards vs. Miami two games back. Manning and company face a tougher-than-usual matchup this week, but he remains an elite fantasy option no matter who Denver faces. David Dodds projects Manning to be the third-best fantasy quarterback in the land during Week 12.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs STL (10 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)

With starting tight end Julius Thomas injured early and Denver running short of healthy receivers, Jacob Tamme saw his most extensive game action of the season. Unfortunately, Tamme failed to capitalize in any meaningful way. While Tamme could once serve as a reliable threat down the middle of the field, he has been terrible this season on all passes 10+ yards down the field, including an 0-for-3 performance against St. Louis, with all three targets coming on 3rd down. Several of those passes were overthrown by Manning, but it looks that, after two seasons of serving as one of Manning's most reliable outlets, Tamme is no longer the chain-mover he once was.
